From Cat Herding to Facilitative Leadership - Victorville, California

Leaders with the most distinctions and the most flexibility have the greatest ability to positively influence others and achieve better results – do you want to learn how to be more effective? 

The qualities of an effective leader are many. In this two-day program you will walk away with the maps of excellence that leaders use in answering and addressing the question, "When should I facilitate and when is it best for me to manage to get powerful results."

Steve Zuieback and Michael Grinder have spent several decades consulting, facilitating and training international leaders. For the first time ever they jointly share their understandings and experineces in working with teams and organizations from around the world. 

Steve is a facilitative expert – Michael is a pioneer in the arena of group dynamics and management. Because lifetimes cannot be poured into a two-day course, they will focus on the maps and skills that outstanding leaders use to navigate to excellence. The session will be highly interactive and the models and skills can immediately be implemented in your leadership practice. Two wonderful resources will be provided as part of the course fee – Fast Track by Michael Grinder and Diagnosis: From Theory to Practice by Steve Zuieback and Tim Dalmau.
